Duties of Authors
Authors of reports of original research should present an
accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its
significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A
paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to
replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute
unethical behavior and are unacceptable.
Review and professional publication articles should also be accurate and objective, and editorial 'opinion' works should be identified as such.
Authors obliged to participate in peer review process, all authors have significantly contributed to the research, statement that all data in article are real and authentic.
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely
original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others,
that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
All authors are requested to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest including any financial, personal or other relationships with other people or organizations within three years of beginning the submitted work that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence, their work.
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.
